    Very good – a tasty, simple, and hearty dish! The only thing that is (unless I missed it) there is no temperature listed to roast the vegetables. I initially roasted them at 350 degrees for 25 minutes but the sweet potatoes were still hard after that. I upped the heat to 450 and cooked them for an additional 20 minutes or so and then followed the rest of the steps and the soup was great! Added a little bit of cayenne pepper for some spicy kick.

    So delicious, hands free and yet comforting and nutritious. We made it today, loved it !!!

  3. Will have to try it again. Tasted great until the apple cider vinegar. 2 tbsp is WAY too much. After adding it, that’s all I could taste and had to keep cutting it down but even then it was too much. I will be halving it or excluding it next time. Overall a great and easy recipe. Will try again!
